Ok, I am resisting the urge to be a tad snarky about this.

Really?

Ads influence children?!

Who knew?

Rather than conducting studies by Egg-heads with way, way too much time and money on their hands they should get busy working for the Lord.

To actually do something useful then the children will follow the example and get busy rather than watching TV ads. Thus, then, no studies will be required to prove to the simple minded that ads flashed on the screen showing fast-food influence eating behavior.

Stealing time from the life God has alloted to you is not very smart. Even dumber is working in a job not so that you might give but hat you might have. For you see, TV ads aimed at Cultural Christian Children would have no effect ….r-i-g-h-t.

 He who has been stealing must steal no longer, but must work, doing something useful with his own hands, that he may have something to share with those in need. (Ephesians 4:28)

The “first of its kind”?

Say what?

Uh, advertisers over the decades have spent millions researching what influences children.

“First of it’s kind”, gesh, Ms. Madeline Dalton, PhD, a professor of pediatrics needs to take a college course entitled, Class On Sounding Smart 101.

Bonus:

Governor Jay Inslee stop scarring children with issues like global warming, gender mix-ups, etc. etc. and etc for your own selfish voter gain. The State of Washington will be surprised at how much depression falls to the wayside. Especially if the iPads were taken away and the “hard work” of using pen and paper were replaced. You know, doing something useful with the hands.

(studyfinds.org)—Dalton and her team recruited 548 families with preschool-aged children in Southern New Hampshire for the study. Parents filled out a survey that reported their children’s TV-viewing time, the channels they watched, and their fast-food consumption.

Their responses were cross-referenced with a list of fast-food commercials aired on kids’ TV channels during the same period. Researchers calculated each child’s exposure to advertising from three major brands: McDonald’s, Wendy’s, and Subway.

The results showed that forty-three percent of the preschoolers surveyed ate from one of the three restaurants during the previous week — nearly identical to the 41% of the preschoolers whowere exposed to TV advertising for such products.
